Coronavirus pandemic has left the world in terror as people across the globe have adopted self-quarantine. However, this has also left the needy without food and strained their livelihood. Amid the global emergency filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has called for volunteers to help him distribute food grains to the needy.
In a series of tweets, Anubhav has shared his concern for strays and the Thappad director has taken up proactive measures as he informed his fans about the same.
He wrote: “Hi friends. I am looking for some volunteers within 3-4 Km of Infiniti Andheri. People who will pick up grains from near Infiniti and take them to 3-4 different areas for distribution to the needy. Hopefully twice a week. We will see as it develops. You should have 1. Info- where you want to take it. Who needs it. 2. Hopefully a vehicle. You can respond on my FB page.”
